Happy Thanksgiving!

The Mighty Pack emerged victorious over the Detroit Lions. It looked grim for Packer fans early in the game, but they pulled through, giving them a four game lead over the aforementioned division rivals with five games left to play. Donald Driver, shown above, had a great game: ten catches for 147 yards, yet no touchdowns. Other teams are so scared of him that it makes it possible for other players to make big plays. The guy works harder than any other football player I've seen, yet gets little credit for his efforts. Pulling in passes when he knows a big hit is coming, getting extra yards through sheer stubborness. He'd make a great bass player.

Next, the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas - the victors of that game having the inside track to homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. A big game for both teams. The Pack has not had much succcess in Dallas in the past and I dislike the Cowboys more than any other team in the league. Hopefully, I'll have good news to post next week.

I can't believe it, but your eloquent enthusiasm actually makes me consider watching 10 minutes of a game. Hmmmm.

Remember, the Green Bay Packers are the only socialist team in major league sports, which guarantees that they will always remain in Green Bay, the smallest market in major league sports. Somehow, players who come to Green Bay and stay there seem to appreciate that despite the reduced pool of money available through endorsements and all that other stuff, the cost of living is lower, they can get to work in five minutes and when they go to the grocery store everyone knows who they are, and not just because they're famous football players. I don't think I could follow any other team with the same level of enthusiasm.
